4.0 out of 5 stars Usually work very well indeed, 27 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We've had three of these - two of them worked perfectly, but one went dead after about half an hour's use.
It was replaced immediately (in advance of us doing the return) by Amazon which was wonderful!

The replacement has been working reliably for over a month and we are happy with it - and with the one we bought last year.

It is so compact that it fits unobtrusively into all sorts of hardware, providing non-volatile storage a variety of situations. So tiny that it becomes part of the machine.
The first one has been used to boot an ancient Acer NetBook with an arcane/obsolescent drive interface and a dead drive. This saved us from buying another netbook, so well worth it.
The second one is being used to extend the local storage on a Google Chromebook without any problems.

Leatherman New Wave Nylon Pouch
Leatherman New Wave Nylon Pouch
Price: £6.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Leatherman pouch that does a great job, makes a popular gift too., 27 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These work wonderfully well for a Leatherman tool of the appropriate type, and they look smart too.
If you have and use the Leatherman Wave add-on tools (and I do) they are essential to keep the tiny bit clips in one place.
Everything packs away neatly in this tough Nylon Pouch with room for all the gubbins, and according to my Appearance Critics it's smart enough to wear on a belt, which is what I usually do.

As an engineer I never know when something will need fixing, and these Wave tools are so useful for everything from opening up a computer or speaker cabinet with Torx screws, fiing down part of an up-cycled PET bottle to make a kid's megaphone or just cutting and trimming things to shape with one of the blades - or snipping a broken fingernail with the scissors.

The Leatherman does all that, of course - but without the pouch, it is unlikely to have all the bits with it. And it might not even be in your pocket!
This (with all its bits and pieces inside) gets transferred when I change trousers, so no worries.

Recommended for Leatherman users - and their friends/relatives looking for a suitable gift. Goes well with Leatherman Wave Bit Kit and Leatherman 934850 Quick-Release Pocket Clip and Lanyard Ring.
Pro Tip:
If the Leatherman is to be used on a boat or dock, I strongly recommend adding a lanyard to the Leatherman. These can be easily and cheaply made from heavy duty sporting boot laces.
The lanyard is needed because 'splash' is not a good thing to hear....

Nice solid wooden handle that can be made to fit most implements - but not all.


Philips SHS3201/10 Secure Ear Hook Headphones
Philips SHS3201/10 Secure Ear Hook Headphones
Offered by eoutlet-uk
Price: £5.75

2.0 out of 5 stars Smart-looking but the sound disappoints, especially for music, 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Philips is usually a reliable maker of sound stuff.
We have several pairs of their headphones and ear-buds around the family, as well as some very acceptable electronics from them, and I usually recommend them.
These particular Ear Hook Headphones seem to be well made from decent materials and they fitted OK.
They look and feel fine.
But the sound manages to be unsatisfying in a number of ways - they start to distort at a very low level, and have a brittle quality to the sound even when turned down. The sound is quite bright and there can be strong bass too, but not at all clear. They mess the music up!
Might be OK for listening to a talking book, but not ideal.
Overall these have been a disappointment.
To be fair they are not as bad as the very worst of the 'free' earphones provided with cheap equipment, and they are well put together.
But if you are looking for a reasonable quality sound experience or seeking to upgrade your OEM earphones we'd recommend looking elsewhere.
They look a whole lot better than they sound.

Fun slide whistle (we used to call them Swanee Whistles) for all ages - went down well at a 70th birthday party....
Worked well with the kazoos, and hilarious when playing "Swanee Kazoo".

Good kazoos, and very popular at a 70th birthday party!
Not as fancy (or as noisy) as the metal ones, but good value and good fun.
